does it matter what ampage you are putting in the plug? Someone suggested an 'rv glowplug' to us.

I put a 10AMP fuse. My lights are all led, not much pull for amperage.
If there is a failure of the lighting IMO a 10 or 15 AMP fuse would still take care of your wiring.

I thought this idea was out of style like the bucket lights?

Not out of style for us. I put a fuse in my plug all the time I think it looks cool at night and I also have all LED running lights all the way around the 5er, I use a 5amp fuse. A flasher should get there attention. LOL

Yea- they do that at camper shows a lot.

We have 4 campers parked on my two lots (which stay there year round), and we installed a push button automotive switch on each camper using two sta-kon terminals on the end, and then into the plug as described earlier. It makes them a lot easier to turn on and off. The neighbors around liked it so much they did the same with their travel trailers, so virtually every lot in our subdivision with a camper turn on their running lights at dusk and turn off at dawn.

One thing I did do is replace the running light bulbs with LED's- not the whole housing, just the bulbs. After time in hot weather, the running light covers will start to crack from the heat otherwise using standard incandescent lamps.

They make a plug that you can just plug in the end and it will do it by itself. .....
